What makes you tick?

Have you ever thought about what makes you a photographer?  What drives you to take photos?

As a social photographer & artist, my passion is to capture people, but this wasn't always the case.  While I was studying photography I had a dream to be an artist in Brighton.  

 

I didn't start to photograph people until I finished my photography degree.  I remember shooting my first wedding and being terrified.  I was so shy, talking to people, let alone directing a portrait was terrifying, but I loved the result.

Being able to take a shot of a bride and groom and creating an artistic portrait was my driver.  I forced myself to get over the fear of photographing people and embraced the power of the portrait.
